`A technique of growing plants in nutrient solution”. Hydroponics literally means water-working or water-activation. It is a cultivation technique for growing plants in highly oxygenated, nutrient enriched water, rather than soil. The nutrient solution and its management are the cornerstone for a successful hydroponics system. The function of a hydroponics nutrient solution is to supply the plant roots with water, oxygen and essential mineral elements in soluble form. In soil, biological decomposition breaks down...
The xProxy® alert system can be a perfect solution to wirelessly monitor greenhouses in several areas. Growers have successfully used xProxy® in their greenhouses to monitor humidity levels, temperature and on/off-states of irrigation systems and fans.
TenCate produces and supplies high-grade membranes for the most divers liquid applications. Reliable, tried and tested materials designed to meet today’s needs. Where ever water or other liquids need to be retained, Nicolon membranes offer the simple, most effective solution.
Nicolon Shade Cloth Fabrics shade horticultural plants grown in commercial nurseries and greenhouses. Manufactured in widths ranging from six to 17 feet (1.80 to 5.20m), Nicolon shade cloth fabrics add beneficial cover for agricultural crops and livestock and can also function as industrial debris nets.
Water management within horticulture and agriculture is an important issue in an increasingly water scarce world. SAF™ superabsorbent technology can be used in various applications to aid the management of this precious resource, even in areas of low availability.
Delta Hydronics Inc. is recognized as the leader in the Hydroponics Industry by designing, engineering and installing water heating and cooling systems for the hydroponic growing, harvesting and produce processing industries.
Argus is an automated control systems pioneer with over thirty years of leadership and innovation in control technology. We were among the first to use computers for integrating the control of greenhouse environments and irrigation systems. Today our systems are used in horticulture and biotechnology research facilities, universities, aquaculture and aquaponics, and many other custom control applications at sites throughout the world.
Greenhouse operations have been early adopters of the CHP system given their operation’s need for heat. The return on investment is dependent on the regional rate for selling the power to the grid and also the utilities saved from CHP heat.
MicroCool’s advanced fogging technology creates — and maintains — the conditions plants need to achieve their maximum potential. We work with growers everywhere to help create the perfect greenhouse environment for every kind of crop, in every kind of climate.

Sloped Green Roofs Utilize GEOWEB 3D Confinement Technology. Presto has partnered with the leader in the vegetated roof industry American Hydrotech, Inc. for all vegetated roof projects in the United States. They provide a complete solution for all roof types — utilizing the Presto GEOWEB 3D Confinement technology for their product known as GardNet in their Garden Roof Assembly for sloped roof applications.
The plants that we grow in our gardens are very demanding in terms of their hydration and nutrition needs.If we add to this that in many cases the weather conditions do not favour a defined variety, it turns the garden into a crop that requires a lot of attention.
Nicolon Ground Cover Fabrics control weeds found in land maintained by professional growers and landscapers. These highly useful fabrics feature woven polypropylene that allows water and nutrients to pass through while preventing roots from implanting into the soil. Available in widths from 3 to 15 feet (0.90 x 4.5m), Nicolon ground cover fabrics can also be utilized in soil separation and barrier fencing applications.
The main benefits of the Toptex winter protection fabric can therefore be listed as creating barrier against wind chill and UV radiation, thereby nullifying temperature extremes, allowing the exchange of gases, which leaves the plants to breath and thereby avoids plant disorder. Furthermore, the Toptex winter protection fabric provides necessary light absorption while also allowing water absorption: whether laid on the ground or in the tunnel method, precipitation is carried within the fabric.
Sowing directly in Greenplugs is becoming more and more popular. This method makes it easier to grade seedlings according to size at an early stage and to remove any plugs in which the seed hasn’t germinated. This may optimise the propagation process and the use of space. Transplanting or repotting seedlings grown in plugs moreover often takes less time than transplanting seedlings grown in trays, and it involves less risk of losses.
Why regulation of your greenhouse climate is important.
As a horticultural entrepreneur, you understand better than anyone that the greenhouse climate has an immense influence on the condition of your crops. Air temperature, humidity, CO2 content and the proper balance of growing lights are essential conditions for a healthy and vigorous crop. By regulating your greenhouse climate in a proper manner, you reduce the chance of disease and plagues and you ensure the quality of your production. Moreover, you save...
Working Towards Sustainable Agriculture Without Chemicals and with Optimum Yields of High Quality Crops. Biological sustainability for horticulture, agriculture and turf management has become a going concern for the future. Proventus is focused on creating beneficial and effective microorganisms for sustainable agriculture that can be successfully transitioned from chemical-based farming to alternative agriculture techniques that help to improve and maintain the quality of agricultural soils.
